Cupid’s Advice:

Rumors are sometimes inevitable, but there are some things that you can do in order to keep gossip about your relationships from spreading.  Cupid has some advice on how to stop rumors in their tracks:

1. Be honest: People are bound to gossip, but it is up to you what information you would like to disclose about your relationship to your friends and family members.  Make sure that what you say to people are honest facts about how you’re feeling, and not what you think sounds good.

2. Speak up: If you have a problem with something someone is saying, tell them!  Asking someone to stop talking about your personal life may not always work, but if there is a rumor being spread that is not true or makes you uncomfortable, talk  to the people who are spreading them; it’s a good step towards making it stop.

3. Try to find out where the rumor is coming from:  People may believe something that is not true based on your or your partners actions or something taken out of context.  If you can find out what caused the rumor to begin with, you can address it and make sure that it is clarified.
